NATSAP membership

Our school is a full member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP).

NATSAP was founded in 1999 to serve as a nationwide resource to assist programs that work with young people who are facing emotional and behavioral challenges, according to NATSAP. The organizations is governed by a volunteer board of directors that’s composed of representatives from NATSAP organizations.

To be a NATSAP member, a program must be licensed by the appropriate state agency or accredited by a nationally recognized behavioral health accreditation agency. In addition, all NATSAP members must be overseen by a qualified clinician, the NATSAP site says.

NATSAP publishes an annual directory of member schools to inform families, professionals and programs about the many alternative treatment settings available in the United States.
